  1. THE LIFE AND ART OF MEAD SCHAEFFER
    $44.95

    Mead Schaeffer was one of the foremost illustrators of the "romantic era" of American fiction, working in much the same style as N.C. Wyeth and Dean Cornwell, who were both mentors to him, illustrating top-selling adventure books and magazine stories, and influenced by the great Howard Pyle. He worked for decades producing atmospheric and evocative illustrations and his romantic, swashbuckling, and theatrical paintings ultimately earned him a spot in the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame. In the 1930s and during World War II his style changed to a more realistic but equally superb one...and he was featured on cover after cover of major magazines. Learn More

  4. STANLEY MELTZOFF Picture Maker
    $44.95

    Stanley Meltzoff was one of the first paperback cover artists to be noted for his work in the science fiction field, painting dramatic images that escaped the pulp influence evident in most other science fiction covers of the 1950s and 60s, for publishers from Ballantine to Ace. He also did paperback and digest cover paintings in other genres, from iconic racy themes to mystery/detective. Meltzoff also produced work for slick magazines, including Scientific AmericanLifeFortune, and the Saturday Evening Post. Learn More
  5. ALICE CURIOSER AND CURIOSER
    $50.00

    Lewis Carroll’s Alice was first published in 1865 and has never been out of print, translated into 170 languages. But why does it have such enduring and universal appeal, for both adults and children? This book explores the global impact of Alice in art, design, and performance from the 19th century to today. Starting with the Victorian literary and social context in which this story was created, it shows the ways it's been reimagined and reinterpreted by each new generation, from the original illustrations by John Tenniel to artwork by Peter Blake and Salvador Dali, and from the 1951 Disney movie to Tim Burton’s 2010 interpretation.

  8. BOTTLE IMP OF BRIGHT HOUSE Signed
    $17.99

    Think of a wish. Go big with it. A winning lottery ticket. Eternal happiness. School vacation for a year. Now, answer this question: If you know this wish will come true, would you still make it if you knew someone else would somehow have to pay for it? That's the catch thirteen-year-old Gabe Silver faces when a mysterious millionaire sells him a bottle containing a wish-granting imp. Inspired by a Robert Louis Stevenson novella, this is pithy, dark, and very, very funny. It has an endearing, wacked-out cast of characters brought to life by illustrator Gris Grimly with an embossed color cover and black and white art throughout. Learn More

    Once upon a time in a rural English town, an eleven-year-old girl named Lettie Hempstock showed a little boy the most marvelous, dangerous, and outrageous things beyond his darkest imagination. But an ancient power has been disturbed, and now invasive creatures from beyond the known world are set loose. There is primal horror here, and menace unleashed—within the boy’s family and from the forces that have gathered to consume it. Determined to get what they want, these otherworldly beings will destroy a meddling little boy if he dares to get in the way. It will take calm, courage, and the cleverness of the extraordinary Hempstock women—Lettie, her mother, and her grandmother, to keep him alive. But his survival will come at an unexpected cost. . . .

  10. CHARLES VESS From the 1970's to 1996 Hurt
    $60.00

    More than 20 years ago, this was the first (and still only) attempt to chronicle the life and work done by noted illustrator and comic book artist Charles Vess. Charles got his start in obscure fanzines, doing limited run posters, and other projects that most fans today haven't even heard of. This handsomely illustrates a great many of these with full page artwork. This was obviously done in tiny printings, since this is the 4th and all are scarce. Slightly bumped corners. Learn More
